I Was Entertained

The Lightning Thief was pretty entertaining.  I liked the characters and the plot.  The world building was nicely done.  The author did a fairly good job at keeping close to the original myths (though considering that the original greek myths have various original versions themselves, there’s always room for leeway).   339 more words

This book came out ten years ago and after reading it I’ve been trying to figure out why I didn’t read it when they first came out. 182 more words

The People Have Spoken!

My next book will The Lightning Thief (this time spelled correctly for your reading pleasure).

I shall start my new adventure on the morrow.  Tonight I will watch Guardians of the Galaxy with the roommate, who is watching it for the first time.


You Pick My Next Book

So, I thought it would be fun if you guys helped pick out my next fish bowl book.

The Lightning Thief (Riordan)

I read and liked it before, but our son has become fascinated with mythology, so we read it aloud as a family. It worked very well. 83 more words
